No hurry on North Korea denuclearisation

President Donald Trump said on Wednesday his meeting with Vladimir Putin would lead to "big results", in a continuing bid to calm a storm over his failure to criticize the Russian leader for Moscow's actions to undermine the 2016 US election.

Trump tweeted the remark on Wednesday, promising "big benefits and exciting future" for Pyongyang "at end of process." . "We have no speed limit", the USA president told reporters. "There have been no rockets going up for a period of nine months, and I think the relationships are very good, so we'll see how that goes".

On Wednesday, Trump reaffirmed in a tweet that Russian Federation "had agreed to help with Noth Korea", adding sanctions he extended on Pyongyang earlier in April would remain in place. But critics said it only reiterated previous commitments and failed to lay out a timeline for denuclearisation.

Last month's summit was the first ever meting between leaders of the United States and North Korea.

At certain points, the president seemed to get carried with his war of words with Kim.


This comes at a time after North Korea and South Korea agreed to hold a family reunion event by mid-August this year, as decided by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in during the historic inter-Korean summit at the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) on April 27 this year.

Some reports have even suggested that Pyongyang is pushing ahead with construction at sites affiliated with its nuclear and missile programs, based on satellite images. We have - we're just going through the process.

The meetings were the first between USA and North Korean high-ranking officers since March 2009.

Russia's RIA news agency, citing Moscow's envoy to Pyongyang, reported on Wednesday that a summit between the leaders of Russian Federation and North Korea is "on the agenda" and that it would be "logical" to raise the idea of lifting sanctions. Later he changed his tune again, and the summit eventually took place.
